How to Prevent Ice Dams

With many areas of the country experiencing more snowfall than we have had in recent years, and more snow expected, there is a lot more snow on the ground this year. And the snow isn’t just sitting on your lawn, it’s on your roof as well. Between ice dams and icicles, there are some worries about snow sitting on your roof for too long.

To help prevent icicles and ice dams, Lou Manfredini from HouseSmarts Radio recommends tossing some roof melt pucks on your roof prior to a storm. These pucks help prevent roof damage by melting through ice dams and safely allowing water to drain from your roof. And don’t worry, they will not damage your roofing!
